I need a program that will translate english text into a phonetic form of writing. For example, the word through might be written as thru, write as rit, etc.
A labor intensive way to do this is to enter the alternate spelling into MS autocorrect. As each word is entered in standard spelling, ac changes it to the phonetic spelling. So, for example, after typing through, autocorrect translates it to thru. But this method is of limited use because it is too labor intensive. But this method limits the amount of texts available because it is so laborious.
I currently use an I.R.I.S. pen scanner to scan in the words which are then processed by autocorrect, but this is still too slow to produce the number of texts needed.
But I want to automate the process so that each word of a scanned document will automatically be submitted to autocorrect.
